Marvel Madness!

VIA First Showing
    Ever since Marvel Studios wrapped up it's "Tier One" movies with The Avengers, the question has been up in the air as to what films will make up the "Tier Two" films. We already known next year will see Iron Man 3 and Thor 2 and that 2014 will show off Captain America 2, but Marvel has already said that two other films will be released before is how rumored 2015 Avengers 2. 
    It has been all but confirmed (With confirmation likely coming at Comic-Con) that the second 2014 film will be Guardians of the Galaxy, a lesser-known comic with ties to Thanos. The second unknown movie has been up in the air as of now. Rumors of a S.H.I.E.L.D. movie, a new Hulk and Black Panther, but right now, the front runner seems to be Edgar Wright's Ant-Man.

     Edgar Wright is one of my favorite directors, having directed the Simon Pegg and Nick Frost classics Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz. And it apparently appears that he filmed a test reel for Ant-Man, in order to see how he would look on film. Directing duties will have to wait though, as he is next directing the (High-anticipated, in my opinion) At World's End, his next collaboration with Pegg and Frost.
    Other news is about Disney's plans to make an animated film based off of Marvel's Japanese influenced Big Hero 6. It's unknown if it will tie into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but still, it'll be cool to see. Man. Marvel's been busy.
